I have to say well done to troy Corser on taking a stand against the officials about race 2..the track was completely flooded and the officials (international ones not the local guys) wanted them to race..but Corser took an extraordinary stand and physically blocked the pitlane and wasnt going to let any rider past him..2 or 3 riders went out and did one lap including Colin Edwards and reported that it was crazy riding in those conditions.

I have never seen rain like that before down at Phillip Island..it was torrential and the track was flooded and there was no way they could race in the conditions.

thankfully common sense prevailed and the race was cancelled ..which was a shame but totally understandable with the rain as it was.
